“40 Seasons of Jazz — Photo Exhibit”

When jazz drummer Bubba Thomas saw that talented young students weren’t getting the musical education they needed, he put to-gether the first Summer Jazz Workshop. That was back in 1972. “40 Seasons of Jazz — Photo Exhibit,” currently on display at the Houston Public Library’s Central location, documents the program’s growth from a small-scale workshop held at a local church to a nationally recognized musical powerhouse. Photos in the exhibit show the students, their instructors and guest artists in the classroom, rehearsals and performances around the country. 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through July 9. 500 McKinney. For information, call 832-393-1313 or visit www.houstonpubliclibrary.org. Free.
